TUI Cruises takes delivery of methanol ready MEIN SCHIFF 7

CruiseMeyer Turku delivered MEIN SCHIFF 7 to TUI Cruises, the first vessel with methanol readiness built at the shipyard. Mein Schiff 7 is the seventh ship of the Mein Schiff series built at the Turku shipyard.

MEIN SCHIFF 7 is the first ship in the MEIN SCHIFF fleet to run exclusively on low-emission marine diesel (with maximum sulphur content of 0.1%). The ship has a shore power connection and is equipped with catalytic converters. In addition, MEIN SCHIFF 7 is built so that it can also run on methanol, which with the green methanol of the future will make the ship's propulsion power almost CO2-neutral. MEIN SCHIFF 7 is the first vessel with methanol capability built at the Meyer Turku shipyard.

"Receiving this ship is a special moment for us. 10 years ago, we acquired our first Blu Motion class ship here in Turku, and by 2019 we had built a total of six vessels. We would like to thank the Meyer Turku shipyard for the excellent cooperation and the development of our well-being fleet. We are now sailing on MEIN SCHIFF 7 to Kiel, where we will welcome the first guests on board on June 12th", says Wybcke Meier, CEO of TUI Cruises.
